Chilean Baked Sea Bass (Corvina) recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 sea bass fillets
  • 200 ml of white wine
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon of dill
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Preparation

  1. Place the sea bass fillets in a large glass dish, pour the white wine, dill or thyme, and season to taste with salt and pepper, combine everything, cover with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for 60 minutes.
  2. Turn on and preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F) for at least 10 minutes. In a medium skillet, add a splash of oil, heat over high heat and add the garlic and onion, reduce the heat and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, just until softened.
  3. In a glass baking tray, add a splash of oil and arrange the tomato slices on the bottom, place the marinated sea bass fillets, the sautéed onions and garlic, and pour the marinade liquid over them, cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes or until the fish is cooked through.
  4. Serve the Chilean baked sea bass immediately, accompanied by boiled potatoes, white rice, or a selection of salads to your liking.

Preparation tips

To ensure the fish is cooked through, carefully uncover the aluminum foil and press down on the thickest part of the fillet to check that the flesh flakes apart easily.
